Your Love Song

What I remember most
Of all the things you’d say,
Was how you would always
End this way,
“Did you find to time,
To write my song today?”

But you always seemed, to resist,
My heart, my soul, my deepest kiss,
You never looked me in the eye,
As I stood strong, by your side.
And though I gave you my all,
It was never was quite enough.

So this is the love song,
I always said I’d write for you.
Though it took some time,
To work out the lines,
It’s my pleasure…
To sing it for you.

You’ve made me so happy,
I’ve never been this sure.
All my clouds went away,
Like a bright, sunny day,
When you walked out on your own.
I once believed I’d never survive,
Instead I’m feeling truly alive.

I’ve never loved you more,
Than the day you slammed that door.
As you were walking away,
I could finally say ‘I love you…’
Don’t take this the wrong way,
I really mean ‘I love you…’

I love you far away.

Five AM

[A little song Jason Hastain and I wrote quite some time ago…]

It’s Five AM
I feel you touch my shoulder,
Do you pull me close,
Or does my heart grow colder?

Remember when
You’d wake me with your kisses,
Now all we’re left with
Are memories and wishes.

I’m laying, here in the dark,
Askin’ myself how we’re falling apart,
I feel you breathing, so close to me,
I feel like I’m drowning, alone at sea.

Time after time, it’s all the same,
”I love you,” always seems to contain,
The feeling of, a pre-programmed code,
Automation is the end of the road.

Your shadow, is all I can see,
I know you’re turning, turn away from me,
I feel the wreckage, inside my chest,
A total breakdown of our happiness.

So here we lie, here in the dark,
Beside each other, a million miles apart,
Can’t comprehend, how this could be,
I let you slip, so far from me.

It’s Five AM,
I feel you touch my shoulder.

Good-bye

I never dreamed of being perfect,
Or expecting that of you,
Yet I thought we could be happy…
Me and You.

Never gave you my demands,
Or told you what to do,
I love you… for who you are…
You’re still wishing on your star.

I can only be myself,
You wish I was someone else,
But I can’t live that lie…
Guess it’s time to say good-bye.

I wish I could change for you,
And be all you asked me to,
But I won’t tell you lies…
Wish I didn’t have to say…

Good-bye.

I wear the gray and black,
Down at the penitentiary,
Well, you think it’s hard on you…
Well, It’s damn hard to be me.

I’ve bled stars and stripes,
And stood strong for liberty,
Some scars of ours run deeper…
Than the sharpest eye can see.

I can only be myself,
I wish I were someone else,
But I won’t live that lie…
Guess I have to say good-bye.

I wish I was all you need,
I’d give everything to be,
But I won’t sell you lies..
Wish I didn’t have to say…

Good-bye.

Now, I’ve lost every dream,
I ever fought to hold on to,
But that doesn’t seem to matter…
Much to you.

If you can’t see who I am,
And the man I’ve always been,
Then walk away…
Or open up your heart and stay.

‘Cause I can only be myself,
Not a shell of someone else,
Until the day I die…
Will you be there to say good-bye?

I wish I could change for you,
Be all the things you want me to,
But it would be a lie…
Still, I wish we didn’t have to say…

Good-bye

Trip the Lights

If I trip the lights tonight,
Would it give me strength to fight?
If I trip a wire in the dark,
Would I only see the deadly spark?
Or would I find the time to re-align,
The bloody wreckage of my fractured mind?
Would I sift the burning lines to find,
An answer to this naked crime?

My hate’s the only way,
To finally put to rest this day,
So I’ll call you up to say,
That your fears are in my way.
I never heard the dial tone,
One click and it was gone.
As the room fills up with fire,
I’ve never felt like I was higher.

Through the window just in time,
As the flames run down my spine,
I see a shadow on the ground,
The last trace of you I ever found.
Red eyes stare me down,
Fleeing farther with a violent sound,
My hate’s the only way,
To justify the price you’ll pay.

If I trip the lights tonight,
Would I disappear in firelight?
If I tried to catch you in my car,
Would I burn beneath the ancient stars?
Or would I find a way to replay,
Your games, the way you kill the day?
Would you shed a tear for love and fear,
Will I die tonight…
If I trip the lights?

It Could Have Been You

I guess it couldn’t have been me,
But it could have been you,
I was living a dream,
That you could have made true,
When I wished on a star,
I saw you wish on one too,
I guess it couldn’t have been me,
But it could have been you.

I guess it couldn’t have been me,
That fell in love with you,
He was the happiest guy,
I think I ever knew,
Now when I think of your smile,
It turns my heart to blue,
I guess it couldn’t have been me,
But it could have been you.

Sunny days,
Can’t replace,
I wish that it would rain,
Down on my face,
To hide the trace,
Of tears I shed for you.

I guess it couldn’t have been me,
Walk down the aisle with you,
You were the light of my life,
I feel so lonely without you,
Now all I’m left with are words,
Yes, your silence speaks true,
I guess it couldn’t have been me,
But it could have been you.

I guess it couldn’t have been me,
The one you’d always adore,
I know I’m not the one,
That you’ve been searching for,
I just want you to know,
Before I say adieu, (I do…)
I guess it couldn’t have been me,
But it could have been you.
